Spend Seven Nights in Funchal for the perfect slice of Portuguese island life.

Madeira’s capital city has a wonderfully laid-back, relaxing pace of life which you can’t help falling into as soon as you arrive. We’ll normally recommend a stay at one of our favourite hotels in the city – the charming Quintinha Sao Joao. You’re a short, five-minute taxi ride from the seafront Avenida do Mar, Funchal’s marina and the famous old town Zona Velha restaurant district, and you’ll have time to explore the city at your own pace – time to ride the teleferico cable car and the Carro de Cesto taboggans, time to sample the best of the island’s seasonal cuisine, and time at sea with Madeira’s whale and dolphin populations. You might also like to explore further afield by including one of our private guided tours to the dramatic east coast or the mountains of the far north west.

You can also personalise your holiday – if you’d prefer to self-cater our one bedroom cottage at Casa das Vinhas is perfect for a couple, and our Old Town Apartments are ideal if you’d like to stay in the heart of the lively Zona Velha.


You’ll begin your holiday flying direct from the UK to Madeira. You’ll be collected on arrival in Funchal by our driver, for your transfer to the centre of the city.
You'll take the cable car up Monte Palace Tropical Gardens, returning on a Carro de Cesto – the famous wicker toboggans which run down the steep streets from the gardens to Livremento.
You'll head to sea today on a whale and dolphin watching trip from the local marina.
You might like to add a private tour of the river valleys and coastal towns of eastern Madeira.
You could include a half-day tour to the Cabo Girao skywalk, and the Curral das Freiras: the secluded Nuns Valley.
You could explore the spectacular cliffs on the north coast with our resident guide, ending your day with a swim in the famous seawater pools at Porto Moniz.
You could end your week with a guided walk along one of Madeira's famous levada trails.
You’ll be transferred to the airport for your flight home.
